Profound San Francisco
What is Profound?
The Profound treatment is a non-surgical alternative for treating facial wrinkles and the appearance of cellulite. It combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with ultrafine needles (microneedles) to renew your skin from within. Healthcare providers across the globe rely on the Profound treatment to provide lasting wrinkle and/or cellulite reduction for their patients. At Union Square Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer Profound treatments in San Francisco.
How does Profound work?
The Profound system uses RF injectable energy to induce the body’s natural healing response to create new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, thus addressing the biggest problems of aging skin.
What can the Profound system treat?
As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and becomes more fragile. This is a result of our body’s collagen levels decreasing, elastin production stopping and hyaluronic acid diminishing. The Profound treatment awakens your body’s own natural healing process by stimulating the production of these three skin elements to create younger-looking skin. Profound can help tighten and lift the jaw line and rejuvenate crepey neck skin.
What is the Profound treatment like?
The treatment begins with Dr. Chiu-Collins using a local anesthetic to manage comfort. Dr. Chiu-Collins uses the attached Profound handpiece to deliver injectable energy to the deeper layers of the skin at the exact amount of time, temperature, and depth where treatment is most beneficial. The entire treatment takes roughly an hour to complete.
Recovering from Your Profound Treatment
Why is elastin important?
Elastin and collagen work together to keep skin smooth and firm. Starting in our 20s however, elastin begins to break down and become less elastic, causing skin to lose its spring. The decreases in elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid are what cause the appearance of wrinkles and aging skin.
